New High Definition Formica
It looks like stone doesn't it? Well it's not. It's a new high-definition laminate from Formica. This laminate has a glittering, prism-like effect that makes it look even more like natural stone. My dad and mom just remodeled their kitchen and used the 3422-RD Crema Mascarello in Radiance Finish for their countertops with cream colored cabinets. What a difference from the old formica. The 189fx Formica Group comes in a variety of colors and finishes. It is amazingly scratch resistant and durable.

The white kitchens with stainless steel and gray touches remind some of a forensic lab and are losing favor with the public. In 2018, be prepared to see more color in kitchen designs, from the cabinetry to the sink materials,” said Houston designer Nina Magon, who foresees basins in granite and concrete as well as copper. U.S. companies are offering exuberantly toned enamel stoves, which have long warmed French and English kitchens. Viking, the maker of the stove in the above Colorado kitchen by designer Thom Filicia, offers ranges in apple red, cobalt blue and Bordeaux. BlueStar offers appliances in 750 color options. “Kitchens are treated more like living and dining rooms,” said New York designer Vanessa Deleon. Their design is following the general wave of layered eclecticism. To each his own.

Kitchen Remodel Tips
According to HGTV, a kitchen remodel of a room 12 x 12 ft. should cost the homeowner from $17,000 to $37,000. A kitchen remodel will improve the space if an oversized sink is installed, a foot-pedal controlled faucet or a touch faucet is included, soft-closing cabinet hinges are used, and a refrigerator with the freezer in a lower drawer or a French door style unit is purchased. Lighting is also very important in the kitchen. Combine overhead lighting, decorative lighting, and task lighting for the best results. Houzz recommends appliance garages set at countertop level. This allows the homeowner to keep their appliances plugged in but concealed behind closed doors.

Families often gather in the kitchen not only for eating but to visit and even work. How can we make all that stainless steel and tile cozier? I found the following pictures that display success in personalizing the kitchen and making it a warm and friendly place.
In the first kitchen (image provided by DeVol Kitchen), they paired brass and marble and painted wood cabinetry with paintings, flowers, personal family items, and a jewel tone paint. A vintage rug would be another good addition.
Another kitchen (photo by My Paradissi), provided a comfortable seating spot and added that soft rug.
